Kinesiology is a human service major that trains individuals to help others enhance the quality of their lives through a balance of physical activity and other areas of wellness. Professionals in the field are able to design and implement physical activity programs that are safe, effective, developmentally appropriate, enjoyable, and inclusive of people of varied interests and physical characteristics. The curriculum in kinesiology can be tailored to individual student interests, although in general, it prepares students for careers related to physical activity, fitness, and sport, and provides a broad exposure to the liberal arts. Graduates pursue careers as physical education teachers, health-fitness instructors, personal trainers and exercise leaders, recreation directors, athletic coaches, and athletic administrators or cross over into areas related to sport and recreation management. Kinesiology also is excellent preparation for professional certification programs in fields such as athletic training, massage therapy, personal training, and strength and conditioning. Students interested in physical education teacher certification should also consult the Education section of the catalog.
